  2. original slappy

    I’ll eat my Crow! Best win I’ve ever witnessed!!!

  3. MadHatter

    Stoops for president!

  4. Alleykat16

    I just want to say I came on here at half time and everyone was already losing the game. What I know about the game is its 60 minutes long not 30 minutes. What a great team win. GO BIG BLUE!

  5. ScottGreene22

    Definitely had the better team. Finally we beat them and in a crazy play to end it

    Florida, the blood has gone thin.

    We won this game the same way Florida usually beats us.

    1. mashburnfan1

      No we earned it, in fact made it closer than it should have been. We did not need a bogus holding call at the end of the game like they did last year. The FG call I am not sure, looks like it went right over the upright so not sure what the rule is. I know the announcers kept saying good but the tv angle was not right up the post, could have gone either way but refs owed us for missing 2 blatant holding calls on us and for calling the worst PI call in the history of football. That official needs suspended a game or 2 for that PI call.

  9. justaguyinthebackrow

    Wow, what a crazy game.

  10. J-Dub421

    C! A! T! S! CATS! CATS! CATS!

  11. bigbluebanana

    I’m up here in Pittsburgh surrounded by co-workers…they just don’t get why I’m screaming! Go Big Blue!!!

    1. runningunnin.454

      Maybe they haven’t screamed since Bradshaw connected with Harris against the Raiders, ha ha ha.

  12. CaliCat

    Wow! Amazing. Go, Cats!!!

  13. stunninsteve

    Man, I was the first to call for Terry to be pulled, but this is some crow I’m happy to eat! After seeing his interview how can I not pull for him?! Congratulations young man, an you too, Benny Snell! You have the heart of a lion…

    1. makeitstop


  14. Han

    Every time the camera shows Benny in the postgame, he’s bouncing up and down.

  15. CATandMONKEY

    I don’t even know how to act

  16. Dustin Rumbaugh

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Yes!!!!!

  17. 4everUKblue

    A lot of you owe Terry a huge apology!!!! He played well!

    1. 4everUKblue

      Terry earned his spot as far as I’m concerned!

    2. CombatMedic_98

      He’s hired

    3. CombatMedic_98

      Sorry you’re not the “boss” of KSR

  18. stunninsteve

    I was the first to call for Terry Wilson to be pulled, but after seeing him bounce back and fight like that, and hearing his postgame interview, I’m happy to eat crow tonight! And congratulations Benny Snell, you have the heart of a lion!

    1. stunninsteve

      Accidentally posted twice, I apologize

    2. runningunnin.454

      No need to apologize, in fact,

  19. michaelb

    Great day for ky football ! What else can we do this year ? Fla is one of our toughest opponents this year can’t wait to see more of these football cats

    1. Luether

      Ky looked like a legitimate SEC Football Team! The Cats simply wanted the game more than Fla…

  20. Cmart0907

    Thank you JESUS!!!!! I was at the game last year. Now Florida feels our pain.

    1. Jesus H. Chrysler

      Ur welcome Son

    2. Cmart0907

      I need a million dollars since you’re here already.

  21. warthog0824

    Go cats!!

  22. CATandMONKEY

    Anyone still pushing the QB controversy?

    1. Jesus H. Chrysler

      I’m sure CombatMedic will come up with some excuse

    2. CATandMONKEY

      Ha. Exactly who I had in mind.

    3. CombatMedic_98

      Woah now…all you haters…! I can change my mind…well maybe!

    4. CATandMONKEY

      Indeed you are allowed. Hope you were able to watch. You did predict a victory.
      We should all be happy to be BBN today.

    5. CombatMedic_98

      Oh I DID

  23. Jesus H. Chrysler

    Bennie is a BEAST for 175 yds

  24. Blue Bill

    What time does the plane land????

  25. Ridge Runner

    Very proud….

  26. henderblue

    Terry Touchdown was Terry Terrific tonight. The streak is dead and buried in The Swamp!!!!

    1. 4everUKblue

      Where are you now combat medic???? How’s that crow tasting???

  27. MyFriendsBrotherInLawKnowsMattJones

    Where’s Coach Combat Medic???

    1. CombatMedic_98

      I am here…yeah Terry did much better…finally ran a touchdown n threw a TD…BOUT time…LOL! We needed this one.

    2. 4everUKblue

      Shoulda watched the game CombatMedic, he threw for two and ran for one and had over 100 yds.

    3. UoKFB PHAN

      I admit, I was thinking early in the game that if Wilson caused another turn over then he needed to sit and Hoak needed to be on the field. But then you see him make plays with his feet and make a great pass to Bowden and I’m like, ‘well you really can’t pull him’. I think he is going to be a work it progress. This may well show us what Hinshaw and Gran can do when developing a QB.

    4. CombatMedic_98

      Coach always knows best?

    5. 4everUKblue

      Medic you don’t know $h!t, stop pretending to be a UK fan and find another bandwagon.

    6. CombatMedic_98

      You r right…you must though!?

  28. henderblue

    Terry Touchdown was Terry Terrific tonight. The streak is dead and buried in The Swamp!!!

  29. EK

    BIG WIN!!

  30. King_tucky

    Perfect ending to break the streak. Just perfect! Love that Snell got to be a part of it.

  31. KYjellyRoll

    I called a 28-17 score. And 150+ yards from snell I didn’t miss by much! This team has something going for them

  32. Kentucky Packrat

    This was a critical win for Stoops and the team. As one of the SEC Network commentators said, they’ve learned how to win tonight.

    There’s still a lot of room to grow, but I see signs that the coaches have also learned and advanced. I’m good with the team this year.

    I have a feeling that this team is going to be the Cardiac Cats all year long….

    1. CatsfaninFL

      Part of that lends to our style… it’s not a flashly offense, it’s more of a cram it down your throat for 5 yds/rush. Doesn’t lead to a lot of blowouts.

  33. UK Big Board Update

    All the Terry haters are all like “I liked him the whole time lmao ayyyyy!”

  34. King_tucky

    I do kinda wish johnson was part of this win. He deserved it last year.

  35. Miller45

    People who haven’t been around to experience it just don’t understand what this means to all the former players, coaches, fans who have endured years and years of heartbreak and shoulda, coulda, wouldas

  36. CATandMONKEY

    UofL tied with Indiana State. What a night

  37. Miller45

    Or the crying and moaning over a field goal

    1. 4everUKblue

      They can have that field goal back, we don’t need it! LMAO!

  38. (Aixelsyd)0505

    Where is combatmedic98 at??? Must be eating his crow right now

    1. CombatMedic_98

      Nah. Just watching a few other games before ours was over. I quit watching in the third. It was already over for them lit’ Gator Boys…Benny hurt #11 and that’s was it SON! Great job D…Terry Wilson did outstanding. I stand corrected…

    2. UoKFB PHAN

      Hey CM… at least you’re will to admit if you are or might have been wrong. I was a big supporter in the spring and summer for giving Hoak an honest chance when a lot of people were already giving the job to Wilson. I still think they need to work Hoak in because I believe we can also win with him and injuries can happen. Hopefully we’ll get to see Danny Clark get some snaps if we’re on the plus end of a blowout.

    3. CombatMedic_98

      Amen thanks

    4. CombatMedic_98

      I know. Willing to “admit my wrongness” to make everyone feel good about themselves is really good for all of us in society…especially you because it matters that you are “always right”…!

    5. UK Big Board Update

      You quit watching the UK game before it was over???

    6. CombatMedic_98

      It was a joke dude. Man you must be so literal in life you don’t understand sarcasm if it hit u in the mouth ?

  39. michaelb

    Coach stoops had showed just as much improvement as anyone player … his decision making , play calling & scheme was primed up this weekend … I see them fully being able to roll on with this winning way .

  40. Perry1987

    Great Win. We looked the part the entire game for once. We now look like a team that can compete in the SEC.
    For all of you “fire Stoops” crowd, step back and give this man a chance to coach his team. This is not basketball, he and his staff cannot turn this program around in a year. It’s a project and it takes time to get the right players and staff in place and implement his style of play into those surrounding him.
    So proud of our team tonight! Did we play perfect? No. But what I saw was an entirely different Kentucky team tonight playing for a cause and that was to win, and win we did!!
    Great job to Stoops and his staff for this awesome victory!

  41. King_tucky

    To all Bball fans who wanna be a full UK fan now: give me my broom, i got to smack peps who trying to jump on,this wagon. We real fans only got room for cheater n John Short. November is still a couple months away. This win is for all the True Blue Bleeders. Go cheer for Bama, posers!

    1. Jester

      Calm down dude. You’re going on about something that isn’t even a problem. Just enjoy the win.

  42. Cmart0907

    Florida Football Facebook is hilarious. Go check it out.

  43. 4everUKblue

    I say we steal the Petty song ‘I won’t back down’ and make it ours!

  44. michaelb

    Kentucky Sports Radio should do a post game show for this .. are they ?

  45. W1ldCats4Life

    Start making the mold for a Stoops Statue! I was there when Higgs @ crew won the last one. So happy I finally got to see it come to an end. My heart is still racing.

  46. DocMac

    Let the naming of that play begin:

    Philipe’s Final Fumble
    Final Florida Fumble

    What ideas do you have?

  47. 4everUKblue

    Meanwhile in combat medic’s house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse….but there sure are a lot of crickets!!!

    1. CombatMedic_98

      Hey I already called it Gents. Done deal. PERIOD. Quit hatin on Coach!

    2. makeitstop

      Yea I was a pessimist til the end – honestly thought they would reverse the call, give them one more play and we’d blow the coverage and lose. BC that’s what we used to do. Still pouring bourbon…

    3. CombatMedic_98


    4. 4everUKblue

      Combat medic you really should apologize in person to Terry, you couldn’t be more wrong.

    5. CombatMedic_98

      Nope. He earned it tonight. He’s hired.

    6. CombatMedic_98

      You need to find a life to live than “try to demand” people to do stuff in a news blog…cum on young lady get it right!

  48. bailey000

    That win will have a huge impact on this football season

  49. jahanc2uky


  50. SuperTroy18

    We believed.

  51. mashburnfan1

    Team could be scary good if they put it all together. Just think of the turnovers, missed opps to get turnovers and penalties {although some were BOGUS PI call} that we had. Put everything together and we can play with almost anyone on that given day. This was 27-14, could have been 38-10….Just like last week without mistakes would have been 52-7 or so. Keep working guys and lets make those improvements. Congrats to all in the BBN family and thank you to the players and coaches for putting an end to this. How about that overall Defense and Oline tonight.

  52. BluKudzu

    Recruiting just got a huge boost tonight.

    1. mashburnfan1

      Yea and we had 2 guys at that game. Not yet signed but that had to help keep them on board.

    2. UoKFB PHAN

      I’m hoping we can pull off some other big wins and then maybe convince several of the top 5 KY high school players to change their mind and play for UK.

  53. KyZoneBlitz

    Truthfully and technically, Stoops should be 4-2 against Florida with 2 wins at the swamp, including 2 in a row starting our own ministreak!! But all that aside, winning @ florida makes it so much sweeter to watch their garbage fans and that stupid chomp sit there, the way we had to last year, except our players got out a couple words, those POS stood on bleachers waving like little prom queens. Can’t wait to beat them down again next year. They got lucky it was that close. Could’ve been 41-16, as we drove the ball into or at the edge of the red zone twice before halftime until a good play by a defender, putting his helmet on the ball popping it out to cause a fumble (Wilson had it high and tight, tucked, the kid made a good play, can happen to everyone, and usually does in that scenario) and a bad/lazy pass off his back leg that the DB cut in front of to pick off, (Richardson could’ve flattened out his route as well to shield the corner.). Those plays in years past, spelled out how the game would go the rest of the way, regardless of venue, but Wilson didn’t flinch, he had played really well up to that point. He kept his composure, came out in the 2nd half and continued his GREAT game. THAT kid has some WHEELS, literally, got out of some situations that might have cost us the game. He’s only going to get better, our passing game will continue to improve and progress and if that happens, other teams lookout, the Cats is here!!!!! STOOPSTROOPS BABY.

  54. CombatMedic_98

    I called it…Let’s GO BBN

    1. 4everUKblue

      Hang your head in shame young man.

    2. CombatMedic_98

      Negative. Lucky we didn’t put in Hoak. We’re saving him for emergency situations only…LoL

    3. 4everUKblue

      You’re no fan of BBN medic, you’re a pretender, probably never served either. You shamed yourself son and you’re too ignorant to realize it.

    4. CombatMedic_98

      Sorry chap…like I said you have NO Authority and your ignorance is blissful

  55. neilbert

    Big shout out to the offensive line. They were a huge part of this victory. GO CATS!!!!!

    1. makeitstop

      They played like pros – as did the D. 16 points? Also impressive.

  56. makeitstop

    I thought after 2 turnovers the writing was on the wall… we live in hope but we’re conditioned to disappointment. Last Year was the final straw… but we have outplayed them 3 of the last 5 years, and we were due. Stoops deserves the credit this year as much as the blame last year and he’s moved the needle. This is a better program than it has been for 20 years. Maybe – just maybe – we have turned the corner.

  57. Soylentbeans

    Best and most well written article I’ve ever read on KSR.

  58. east-ky-boy

    I can see stoops growing as a coach. That’s not been mentioned enough. He was a recruiter from the start but I really feel he’s becoming a better coach

  59. henderblue

    Ladies and gentlemen, we just beat a top 25 team. In their back yard.

    1. Jester

      Actually in their house, even better. In their back yard would have been a location not far from their place that gives them essentially a home field advantage. Like if we played them in Loserville it would be in our back yard.

    2. henderblue

      Football not played in the house..the yard is on their property. If we beat them in Louisville, it would be the neighbor’s back yard. If you want to be technical…

  60. Lip Man 1

    Wow…long time coming.

  61. CKTermy23

    This win will have a huge impact on recuiting

  62. CKTermy23

    We may be ranked tommorow stay tuned!

  63. Miller45

    Josh Allen is just WOW

    1. CombatMedic_98

      They held him all NIGHT
